set. he's a failure, the family income has gone down $4,000 in 3 1/2 years under obama compared to $2,000 under george w. in eight years. >> because of that family income, that's not a made up number, that's a government number. i think both of these guys should be looking for permanent middle class tax cuts. permanent middle class tax cuts so that take-home pay will go up. i'll give you the last word. >> i found myself strangely agreeing with your plan to cut the middle class and take away the deductions and keep tax rates for people who make a lot of money like you and i fairly high. i think that makes abundant good sense. but we're forgetting one thing. the biggest challenge may be even more than anything is our debt and our deficit. and i think with governor romney and paul ryan figured out was they can't give $5 trillion worth of tax cuts and still eat into the deficit, which i think is our biggest national problem. >> i think -- >> you're right. he might be able to do it. he might be able to do it if they did your plan. >> i'm telling you. you know, you were a good tax break gov
during the obama administration. rick, romney may have been running for president forever, but obama has been president for almost -- you know, for 3 1/2 years. >> and it seems forever. >> only to some of us. >> we're not going get the median incomes up until income growth up. simplification has been to do be done. obama takes no interest in this. rick, when was the last time you even heard president obama talk about growth? >> let me actually switch -- let me switch to mark now. mark, what do you think of the obama tax plan? >> well, look, i don't know if obama has really a tax plan, but i don't think the problem is taxes here. i think the problem is people don't have an income. the reason they don't have an income, they don't have jobs. we have a demand problem in the economy, not a tax problem. cutting taxes, if you have no income, does not make any difference. we need to stimulate demand. how can we stimulate demand? we can do it in a variety of ways, but cutting taxes is not going to get us where we want to go. >> victoria, the message of mitt romney, and a lot of people, is if you
that obama's been president for almost four years and mitt romney running for president for five years and people know about the candidates. there's little new to come out in six weeks. >> we shall see. the first debate on october 3rd. >> if they got it, use it. >> thanks so much. >>> iran's president ahmadinejad makes the final and possibly most controversial address before the u.n. assembly and did that this morning and egypt's new president delivers the first u.n. speech. next i'm going to talk to a former state department officer and reporter of "time" magazine. the nfl lockout, there are reports that the refs and the league resumed talks. what do you think? has the debacle over the replacements refs destroyed the reputation of the nfl?

of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average pared by contrast, in 1984, gdp growth was 7.2% print what does that mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering? they are creating new jobs and people are able to find work. it creates opportunity for everyone. what we have unfortunately is small business after small business facing crushing uncertainty. the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamacare and dodd-frank and the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. but entrepreneurs expressed to me is the sense of great uncertainty. what will the federal regulators do? and the president keep promising to raise everyone's taxes, which is causing small businesses to keep capital on the sidelines and not deploy it because they have so much uncertainty. >> i am not certain that the president is going to raise their once taxes. but you know what the growth rate was -- do a deal with the gdp growth rate was at the e
about 8% for more than three years. but president obama is getting a well timed bump care of the labor department. bystanders showing more jobs have now been created and lost since the president took office. does this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thing is that median household income is down by more than $3,000. that is the real issue. lori: median incomes, talking about flat line, that is one of the crises of the jobs problem in this country that has been a reported. and let you mention it. tell me what you think the response should be. so far it has been just to tap the bailout package,
. this claim by the republicans, i give it to pinocchios. obama will claim that are ryan's plan for medicare will for seniors to pay $6,400 more a year to make up for cuts in the program. this is an old democratic attack that has been around for a while. the problem is it is based on an earlier version of ryan's plan. that is another thing i have given two pinocchios. people should always be aware of dire predictions far off in the future. the $6,400 figure refers to an analysis of cbo estimates of a different, less generous ryan plan that goes to the year 2022. they make no estimates of the new version, except to say that beneficiaries might face higher costs. the plan was changed in other ways too. it changed the option of traditional medicare. it also decided to set the feature growth rate for medicare to the same matter accused by obama in his budget so there would not be a difference there. a study published recently by a journal of the american medical association suggests the average cost to additional medicare would be on the $800 more a year in the ryan plan if it had been in place
of a president doing this kind of a speak and run is pretty unprecedented. here's what president obama's new york scrapbook looked like last year. he met with britain's prime minister, david cameron, had a sit-down with french president sarkozy, mr. obama also spoke one-on-one with israeli prime minister netanyahu. he met with all those world leaders, all these world leaders as well. 13 in all. similarly, there was plenty of meetings the year before and the year before that. in fact, keeping them honest, we checked and discovered that no president in recent memory has ever come up for the general assembly and not met with anyone. yesterday, white house spokesman jay carney said mr. obama has had over the last few weeks, quote, extensive consultations, unquote, with leaders especially in the arab world. >> the president obviously got a busy schedule. he has a busy schedule all the time. you know, it is a fact that he has in recent weeks been intensively engaged in matters of foreign affairs, and that's part of being president. >> republicans have latched on to this scheduling comment saying mr. ob
afford four more years of barack obama. we are not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney have their first presidential debate. joins the stand for the debate and post-debate coverage. join us live. >> now a debate from the 2000 presidential campaign. vice president al gore was nominated by the democrats and texas gov. george w. bush was the republican choice that your. their first three meetings that -- their thirst -- their first of three meetings that year was held in boston. this is an hour and 45 minutes. >> good evening from the clark athletic center at the university of massachusetts in boston. i'm jim lehrer of the newshour on pbs, and i welcome you to the first of three 90-minute debates between the democratic candidate for president, vice president al gore and the republican candidate, governor george w. bush of texas. the debates are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates and they will be conducted within formats and rules agreed to between the commission and the two campaigns. we'll have the candidates
. in the year following president obama's inauguration, the economy lost 4.3 million jobs but adding in the revis numbers, 4.4 million jobs have been created since 2010. that makes the preside aet job creator and now 125,000 more jobs cread tha beforee took fi. but you know, we goto temper thr years aer te pective. recessn. we have still ly recovered about half of the jobs lost 2008 and hiring clearl n't strong enough to keep up with population growth. not t that the kinds of jobs being created are not necessarily higher incom jobs brooke? >> here's the other but, though, alison kosik. i can hear peopleat their heads and saying, fishy? lculing the numbers with 40 day to go. is there anything suspect here? that's a good question beuse evybody wants the know that. the timing is suspect. but from what we can t there's no conspiracy here. thiss real how the bureau of labor statistics operates. it goes ahead and revised the figures very frequently as it gets more and more information. in fact, these numbers could still be revised again in january. and you know this because when we come ou
.s. recognition of statehood. that is something obama has not received enough credit for. within a year, we have both a jewish congresspersons, one republican and one democrat saying opposite things. your party would do better in the white house for israel. >> i certainly believe so. it is a very critical period. small things can mean an awful lot when the president has not been to israel, snubs the prime minister, has made outrageous claims. these have consequences. i think some of the arab states right now -- these are big blunders. >> you mean the book, thldest of the arab states? >> that daylight between israel and the united states. this is an administration of a great deal of rhetoric. let's look to the actions. >> that is an interesting point, congressman. there are people that say, it doesn't matter if there are nice photo ops. but does it matter what president obama is eating in jerusalem? >> it does matter. >> would you measure military support with the diplomatic aid? he may not love is real. >> i am not asking obama if he loves it, if he believes it is in the best interests of the un
enough times, you start to year i read something about that obama being born in kenya. our brains have a tough time turning off information, just putting them off in front of the statement or saying it is false isn't enough. it's very difficult for people to set those affects and emily's experiment is one illustration of that. there is a whole literature that shows how tough a time we have found human beings. another problem i want to draw attention to is what is often called he said she said reporting. treating the miss statements as simple matters of opinion, disputes between the two sides. the sky is blue or purple, who knows and we see a tremendous amount of coverage. journalism has made progress in this area in the time at least since i have been involved but there is still a long way to go and that sort of she said she said coverage has two problems. first, it may increase the familiarity of the claims but second, a very perverse incentives for politicians who know they can make false claims and while our colleagues on the first panel may call them out a lot of other reporters re
is that president obama and congressman ryan have almost the exact same proposal for the next ten years, save $1 trillion from medicare, not by cutting benefits or raising costs to elderly, but reducing payments to hospitals and other kind of providers. interestingly those two are in the same place on the next two years. romney for whatever set of reasons says he doesn't want to do anything in the next ten years, which means that $1 trillion that his vice presidential running mate would save he does not want to save. he's in a different place on the next ten years. so let's go to the period after that. what's the long-term plan that each of these guys has for cost containment. again, very interestingly, president obama congressman ryan want to achieve exactly the same level of medicare spending over the definite future. they want to increase by gdp plus 1.5%. they would get there different ways. president obama would get there by efficiencies, new methods. ryan would get there by having private competition. in terms of the actual dollars, it's the same. romney, again, we can ask why, does not wa
on the campaign trail yesterday. >> obama: it took a bunch of years to get us into this mess it will take a bunch more to get us out. >> romney: i will make sure the young people of today have great jobs and a bright future. >> sure, great jobs in china. >> stephanie: yeah, and by cutting student loans and pell grants. >> i'll make sure to do it. don't ask me how. >> stephanie: no. >> he gets angry when you ask him now. >> stop it! >> this country is ready for a turn around. [ cheers ] [ applause ] >> this country is ready -- [ cheers and applause ] >> this country is ready for mitt romney. [ cheers and applause ] >> stephanie: oooooooooh. >> ann romney: stop it. >> stephanie: she is warm. >> this is hard. you want to try it get in the ring. this is hard. >> stephanie: even eskimos go oh icy. did we pull up another cartoon by our favorite cartoonist. >> i haven't posted it yet. >> stephanie: okay. he is funny. everybody calm down we're not going to run out of bacon. >> oh, thank god. >> stop it. just stop it. >> ann romney: stop it. >> stephanie: economies have stepped forward
this morning that the national debt stands at $16 trillion. right now if president obama gets four more years, he predicted the national debt would skyrocket to $20 trillion. he is putting that message out there. i had a chance to talk to mitt romney about some of this yesterday and suzanne, he did not seem concerned about this. he came to talk to us on his campaign plane yesterday saying that the obama campaign is basically trying to strike the football on the 30 yard line, there's still plenty of time left, and there is some truth to that. rick santorum and some of the midwestern states for a brief period, and then he was able to close the gap. mitt romney is a good closer. it will be interesting to watch these polls as the days going g on as we get to the debates that are coming up. they'll be critical. >> i'll have to beef up on my sports analogies as well. thank you, jim. good to see you. >>> a reminder we'll be dipping to both president obama and mitt romney's events here in ohio. the president is in bowling green. mitt romney is in bedford heights. we'll go live to both locations. to n
politifact looked at earlier this years -- something nancy pelosi put out -- that obama had increased the that the lease of any president and last six or seven presidents. it was all over facebook and exploded among democrats. i ended up giving that four pinocchio's and that became a viral thing from the other side. also looked at graphic elements that either campaign has put on there website. assertions of fact there that were wanting in both cases -- >> we try to do a lot of those things on facebook because the same way that chain e-mail's became a medium for transmittal of false information, the facebook posts that we called jpeg propaganda, especially during the occupy movement, became a way to spread propaganda. much of it inaccurate. it is tough. what we have to go through every day, this gets to the challenge -- any given day, there are probably 50 or 60 or 100 things we could check. we have for fact checkers. we have to be selective and lately, we focused almost entirely on the presidential campaign messages. but there are interesting senate races we have been unable to fact c
. by the time the reigns got turned back tobarack obama and me, they had double the national deat in eight years. the fourth, fifth, or six days we were in office, we were sitting in the oval office at sunset, and we were informed, mr. president, looking at this year's budget you are going to have a trillion dollars deficit. he said, "i haven't done anything yet." [laughter] he said, no, mr. president, the budget they passed in october of last year guarantees that no matter what you do, you will have a trillion dollar deficit this year in the budget. ladies and gentlemen, these guys talk about the national debt. what date did generated the slowest growth in private-sector jobs since world war ii. it gave us this great recession. what they have not told us is that they have been unwilling to do anything about it. here's the deal, folks. we laid out a $4 trillion debt reduction plan over the next 10 years. we have already passed $1 trillion of it. ladies and gentlemen, these guys vote against everything. no, no, no. i really mean it. not only do they say they don't like our plan, so you say, what'
going after the oil and gas industry when it has created the most jobs in america in the last four years? >> i'm glad that under president obama that we have fewer oil imports but we want everyone to pay their fair share. >> gentlemen thank you very much. we appreciate it. coming up. we hear can't wait for tomorrow night's debate. so we are going to talk about growth and prosperity, tax poli policy, out-of-control spending and debt. team obama kcoerces companies ad not warn companies of impending budget cuts. the president is trying to hide a flood of job losses before the election. the kudlow caucus is going to debate that proposition. free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. i'm kudlow, we'll be right back. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's s
an endorsement of obama care in the process. governor romney is one of the great stories over the last two years that he's been running. at bottom, at heart, he's proud of the law. he tried to find a way in the primaries to be for his own law and not give that up and say i'm proud of what we did in massachusetts. he knew he couldn't be -- he had to figure out a way to be against obama care. he found himself in a ridiculous position of saying i love my own law but it's not good law for the rest of the country even though i said that in an op-ed two years ago. i claimed that to get through the republican primaries. it's an impossible straddle and one that maybe he had to do in order to get through the primary electorate now in this ridiculous position of having to -- he should be proud of the law. a law he is proud of. he hasn't been able to embrace because of the complicated primary dynamics. this is where he should have been all along. it's hard to see it giving him political advantage it might have under other circumstances. >> it shows political weaknesses on mitt romney's part. the first is w

years ago, were pulling the wool over the eyes of voters even back then. at least with obama, as of we have heard, he is somewhat more circumspect when speaking in person about his new ones and some of the things you hear coming out of his ads. in one case, he corrected or contradicted his own advertising. to make my predictions, i sort of threw darts at the claims they make in their stump speeches, romney and obama. we recently did takeouts on the standard speeches that they give. one from each side. i predicted it is quite likely that we will hear mitt romney say that gasoline prices have doubled under obama, which is an example of one of those things that is, yes, literally true if you look at where gasoline prices were when he took office. they have plummeted due to the world wide near-depression we suffered, but the fact is that they have never quite gotten as high under obama as they work for several weeks in the summer of 2008 under bush. i think we will also hear president obama say that we have created half a million manufacturing jobs. he will drop his voice and say, in the l
is too expensive. obama care doesn't make it less expensive. >> romney and paul ryan propose to cap malpractice insurance, cut medicaid by $810 billion over the next ten years, give states more control over their medicaid funds, overhaul medicare. the overhaul, people now younger than 55. when they reach retirement, would have the option of getting a voucher to purchase private insurance or they could stick with traditional medicare. >> this financial support system is designed to guarantee that seniors can always afford medicare coverage no exceptions. >> while the repeal of obama care would get rid of the prescription drug benefit to seniors, romney doesn't want to take out all of the law's provisions. >> we have to make sure that people who have preexisting conditions are able to get insured and that folk that is get sick do not get dropped. >> the president of the american action forum doesn't support the current law. >> both sides agree the amount we spend on medicare has to be capped. they just disagree on how to get there. romney and ryan say what we're going to do is the giv
mr. or president obama for another four years. >> what, if it's over 150? >> i think if it's over 150, you're going to see him a whole lot for the week after that, talking about jobs and how he's creating jobs, yeah. >> um-hum. >> i know that doesn't make you happy. we can pile that on your unhappiness for the -- >> you're just saying either/or, you're not predicting what's going to happen with jobs, right? >> well i've seen as high as 130, as low as 100. i think it's a little too early to talk about it. i think it will be on the low side of that range, but that's why i think under 100 is bad and above 150 would be great. >> the bad numbers really haven't hurt him recently so i don't know if the good number -- i don't know at this point and what's the participation rate going to do? how are they going to play around with that this time, going under eight by the election? >> well, if participation continues to fall off, then yeah. >> right. >> unfortunately that's a pretty wonky, geeky conversation to have. >> doesn't matter if it's under eight, if he can claim it's the same as when he
though is kind of instructive. right now president obama seems safely ahead in all of the polling. pennsylvania is actually the kind of state that mitt romney's promise a year ago he was going to be able to put into play the same way john mccain's promise was supposedly that. the reason why pennsylvania has become so solid democratic they've won in each of the past five elections is largely because theuburbs outsi philadelphia, white collar, affluent, right of center economically, left of center social issues have moved decisively towards the democrats. originally mitt romney was seen as a candidate who could appeal to those voters. but he's not making ma inroads there. as a result pennsylvania seems out of reach in an reastic scenario. >> he was doing so fund raising there. that may be the major reason while he's there although the aides ar being a bit coy pretending they think it's realistic to get the democrats that a sthere. wouldn't be first time. >> we'll see if they put any television montimeey or i that. >> let's see if they t up ere with some money. you've been taking a
's really a republican firewall for mitt romney. in battleground virginia, both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery before a group of veterans, romney slammed the president for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who writeoff half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% of the people vote for the president no matter what. who -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's secretly recorded remarks into a devastating new ad claiming the gop nominee's words under the families and veterans. >> so my job is not to worr
sentiment was such that at least earlier in the year that the the multiple might contract if obama won. so we weren't making a political call. i'll let you guys -- >> now it's gk oing up because it's anticipating an obama win this. >> i've been surprised about that, that maybe the multiple isn't impacted by the presidential election. i guess we have the debate next week. but i think it's been more about fed policy. >> there are those that say that the market hates uncertainty. and that we know what we got the past four years and even though everyone -- maybe certain players don't like the way it has been treated, but the market's done pretty well. so at least it knows what it's getting if obama is reelected. >> nobody seems to be worried about anything in the near term. but the earnings -- fundamentals matter and i believe they will again. i think the earnings -- >> you're arguing you'll be right eventually. >> i hope so. >> is that a good question? >> what keeps me up at night is if the earnings reflect being up and i miss it. that's what i want to get right. >> you look at the late '90s,
president obama has been a stronger ally of israel's than any other president he served with in eight years. that in the words of the vice president. so that is also a big out on the campaign trail today, both sides trying to show who would be the bigger ally of israel at this point. >> all right, fascinating thanks so much, jim acosta. appreciate that. >>> and don't forget, you want to catch that first presidential debate, denver, colorado, romney versus obama. that's next wednesday, 8:00 p.m. eastern time he on c. >>> theh dayof the united natis general assembly and a side group is taking on auably the bloodiest and most brutal problem in the world today. syria. the conf there has reportedlyed more than 30,000 people since march of last yea more than twthirdsre civilians. this is youtube video out of aleppo, the city of aleppo. today, the german foreign minister made a plea before the assembly. >> translator: such suffering is speechless. bulsoimpells us to act. to this very day the security council hasailed to live up to its responsibility for peop in ria. >> germany is part of a special
specific on what he would cut to avoid slashing defense spending at the end of this year. he said that would include funding for amtrak, pbs and national endowment for the arts. president obama spent the day talking about defense spending in the hampton roads area. >>> living social has stepped up, it's going to pick up the tab so metro can stay open late when the nats go into the postseason. that announcement came just moments ago. >>> let's fast forward to the weather. >> teddy was there. teddy obviously won something. finally. out there right now, you can see where we are looking at strong to severe storms back to the west. none around the metro area, but take a look where these are. severe thunderstorm warning in effect for shenandoah county until 5:45. heads-up if you're in that area. along i-81, you're also seeing rain. other showers making their way in toward loudoun county and frederick county. >>> we're learning more about the man hit and killed by a fairfax county school bus. news4's pat pat collins spoke to the victim's family who say they're unhappy with the charge for
. >> it turns out 2 plus 2 is 17 after all-all. >> fox has had this problem for months, most of the year they've had this very serious problem where they have what appears to be a legitimate polling operation and time and again whether it is obama's approval rating or hitting obama up against romney, time and again consistently, they've shown obama doing well. fox has been in the corner not knowing what to do. this has gone on all year. they bury the polls and look for the silver linings but now it is incredibly embarrassing because they're telling all of the viewers, none of the polls can be trusted and -- >> stephanie: i can't blame them. >> how would you like to be the head of polling at fox news and -- >> stephanie: i have more bad news. >> telling the viewers you're a schmuck and you don't know what you're doing. >> stephanie: i can't wait for election night. it turns out everything we've been saying is -- do not believe us. >> bouquet of flowers as an apology. >> they have to. poor karl rove will be tearing his
from mitt romney on the obama record. >> we know where the president's pathway leads. because we're on it. we've seen it for four years. we've seen the number of people on food stamps go from 32 million to 47 million. >> now the romney campaign started out saying the election should be a referendum on the obama record. certainly that rhetoric from mr. romney fits with that in recent weeks they said really a choice. dependency society based on the obama agenda of bigger government and bigger government intrusion into the lives of individual entrepreneural spirit of the american people versus romney view is less government, less regulation, less intrusion and more personal responsibility and opportunities of prosperity versus stagnation. there is a point on which you could expect the obama campaign and the president to pick at mr. romney tomorrow if it doesn't come up in a question at all. now the infamous rashes about the 47% who don't pay income taxes in the u.s. and that surreptitiously obtained video from several weeks back at a florida fund-raiser. the 47% is sure to come up.
, in terms of dividend taxes, obama care, taxes and higher fees there? >> i most certainly do. i think he's going to try to push his agenda. some people want to look back too the clinton years when he lost big time in the midterms just as obama did. >> november '93. >> clinton gave ground. obama has given no ground. i don't know there's any indication he'll give any ground this time. that's a big mistake if that's the case. i hope not. but it appears that's a real possibility. >> how times have changed. i thought mitt romney had a bit of a -- he could do a bit of a "saturday night live" skit, he had some good laughs there, but think about al gore, vice president to clinton, how often did he use president clinton when he was campaigning in 2000? >> times do change, you know. right now you go with the hot hand. president clinton obviously the hot hand. >> if president clinton is the hot hand for the current administration, boy, we haven't just lowered the bar on employment. back to you. >>> when we come back, are loyalty cards the new coupons in the tech area? >>> a few moments left in euro
